1 Onion, peeled and chopped

3 Tbsp European style unsalted butter

Finely ground sea salt to taste

  1. Bring water, milk and lemon to a boil.
  2. Peel the tough outer skin from the celery roots and cut the white flesh into 1-inch cubes while the liquids are coming to a boil.
  3. Add celery root and onion to liquids; simmer for 1 hour.
  4. Strain celery root and onion but reserve liquid.
  5. Puree vegetables in a food processor while adding butter and ½ cup reserved liquid.
